Franciscan Focus

Just a simple blog of a Secular Franciscan trying to live with a Franciscan focus.

Ten books that've stayed with me 

I don't usually play along with these things, but this'un actually grabbed my interest. So ...

I was pinged elsewhere by a pal to list 10 books that have stayed with me. They don't have to be the "right" books or great works of literature, just ones that have affected you in some way. The guidelines: 1) Don't take more than a few minutes, and 2) don't think too hard.

The instructions also say to tag 10 pals, including the one who tagged you, but I don't play that way. If you're reading and wanna join in, consider yourself tagged. :-)

My Ten Books:

  1. Hiroshima by John Hersey
  2. The Elements of Style by William Strunk Jr. and E.B. White
  3. Soup for the King: A Fable by Leonard P. Kessler
  4. The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster 
  5. Deep Conversion, Deep Prayer by Fr. Thomas Dubay
  6. Happy Are You Poor: The Simple Life and Spiritual Freedom by Fr. Thomas Dubay
  7. Joseph the Silent by Michel Gasnier, OP
  8. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
  9. Woman on the Edge of Time by Marge Piercy
  10. The Gate to Women's Country by Sheri S. Tepper
